Tsepe was born in the Eastern Cape in a small town called Mthatha. At the age of 11 his family relocated to Cape Town. His teen years were spent in Cape Town and as any young man would, his struggle to find what his true calling was until one day, a high school talent show had been put together. “I will never forget the day when I sang for the very first time to a public audience he said”. The crowd was simply awed by what came out of him. It had dawned on him that this was it, this was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life, and that was to sing.

 

Tsepe has now developed into a phenomenally talented vocalist. He has the sound of a pop icon and the soothing voice of a soul singer.
